    According to Sky Sports earlier today. Spurs are not interested in chasing Lallana.

    Also said Skiverpool are looking for alternatives to Lallana.

    Wait and see I guess.

    What's rattled your cage .

    Just because you don't recognise a great city and a top flight football team don't use derogatory terms to describe my home city you Jerk !!!
    Why not, half the comedians to come from Skiverpool have been doing it for years. Making a living by being derogatory about the place.

    Where do you live now BTW?

    Got nowt to do with how good the football team is or isn't. Quite enjoy watching them when they're on song and difficult to argue against the long list of honours won.

    Spent some time in Skiverpool, living and working - quite liked the place.

    Particularly enjoyed being helped to get steaming by Everton fans the night a certain Matt Le God came to town and run rings the reds.

    The fact that you're clearly sensitive about it doesn't make me lean toward not aggravating that sensitivity so Skiverpool it is you Jerk!!!!
    BOOM!......Game, Set and Match!
    He probably lives in Shirley and has never seen the sky over Anfield.
    I live in Liverpool , a city that has a vibrant night life and plenty to do , unlike Southampton.

    The board of Southampton football club seems to be on a suicide path , they've lost their manager ( who was quite good ) , they've lost one of their star goal scorers ( Ricky Lambert ) and your captain ( Adam Lallana ) has stated he would like to join Liverpool and play in the very top flight of football.

    All this has happened whilst the club is leaderless ( manager wise ), if any more players leave possible manager would find it very, very difficult neigh impossible to formulate a strong decisive team whilst doubt and uncertainty was rampaging through the remaining players regarding their future and the club's future.

    I hate to say this but I can see Southampton being relegated again at the end of next season, because the board of SFC have totally mishandled the whole affair. Your present team was very good and did you proud in the premier league, what lets you down is a incompetent management at the club who should of acted sooner."

Southampton Football Club to remain unmoved by Liverpool bid for captain Adam Lallana

Saints put Liverpool's Lallana ultimatum to the test

Saints put Liverpool's Lallana ultimatum to the test

First published in Football

Southampton Football Club are to put Liverpool’s word to the test in a bid to hold on to their captain Adam Lallana.

It comes as the Saints captain and the rest of the England squad set off for Miami this afternoon.

The 26-year-old was picture on the plane sitting next to midfield Jack Wilshere on which the Arsenal player posted on the social network site Instagram, below.

Wilshere posted: "Me and Mr Lallana ready for a long flight!"

Basingstoke Gazette:

Liverpool had initially offered £20m for the 26-year-old, but were unable to convince Saints to sell for that amount.

Yesterday it was reported that they have now upped that offer to £25 million in a bid to convince Saints to sell.

The Anfield side are understood to have said that their latest approach is a final one, and have threatened to move onto other targets if the transfer is not concluded before the World Cup.

That is the same tactic they used to help push through a deal for Lallana's club and international teammate, Rickie Lambert, who is expected to complete his switch to Anfield on Monday.

But Saints look likely to hold off on any offer for Lallana before the World Cup.

The club feel they are in a stronger position when it comes to Lallana, and also Luke Shaw (below), with Manchester United making their own final push to sign the left-back before England depart for Brazil.

United have already offered £27m for the 18-year-old and are keen to wrap up a deal before anyone else can swoop in and hijack it, approaching Saints again yesterday to try and move things forward.

Basingstoke Gazette:

The club want to put transfer dealings on hold until a new manager is in place and the World Cup is over.

It is increasingly unlikely that either player will remain at the club this summer, but Saints feel under less pressure to deal with those matters quickly than they did with Lambert.

Even if they do feel a sale is inevitable, the club know that interest will not disappear and their values may even rise in Brazil.

When they reach Florida Roy Hodgson's squad will take part in a pre-World Cup training camp, before jetting off to South America next Sunday.

Hodgson has said he will allow clubs to send out staff to Florida to conduct medicals in the players' free time if absolutely necessary, but nothing will be allowed once England head to Brazil.

That leaves just a week for any transfers to be completed, although even once the squad depart today it will become increasingly difficult.
